A deep dive into Peer’s approach to decentralisation, encryption, event-driven, peer-to-peer (DEEP) technology. We’re building a social network that won’t exploit your data. At Peer Social we believe that decentralisation is the key to solving some of the most pressing technology problems of our time—starting with social media.Decentralisation is necessary if we want to restore the balance of power on the internet. We want to give users ownership of their data so they can empower themselves and make online, human-to-human connections without their data being compromised.
Peer on Blockchain
Our first application is a collection of decentralised, encrypted, event-driven, peer-to-peer (DEEP) node clusters which are built on an adaptive mesh edge-computing network (AMEN) and will record data through distributed and immutable ledgers, utilizing Write Once Read Many (WORM) storage. Every user personally creates, controls, and stores their own encrypted ledger-based, adaptive network on their smartphone.
Users will be represented by encrypted network node addresses—not names, email addresses, or telephone numbers. Usernames and passwords are stored locally on the user’s smartphone so there is no centrally stored username/password lists for hackers to target
Using a decentralised architecture means that no communication is shared with any user unless they approve it first by sharing public encryption keys with the sender. This will empower users to moderate their own newsfeeds and take responsibility for their online social interactions while maintaining a double opt-in, closed personal network—ensuring the highest level of personal control.
Data and voice communication will be relayed directly between users with whom they have a shared encrypted connection. Each node will also contain a private, individualized, encrypted ledger which stores each connection and all subsequent communication as events—sorted by timestamp, and verified by other nodes on the network.
